Early termination of lease...landlord increasing rent

Hi,

I have sent the registered letter to the landlord, I have found a suitable tenant to take on the existing conditions.

Now, the landlord and his wife are divorcing , she wants a new lease with higher rent, the husband wants to maintain current conditions.

What do I do now ?

Get a letter from the wife releasing me from finding another tenant?

All advice appreciated.

Re: Early termination of lease...landlord increasing rent

if you have a contract, they cannot increase the rent. Can they?
Does anyone have a lawyer to check on this?

So, the husband is very happy to take a following tenant in the situation as-is, but the wife wants to advertise for new tenants, at a higher price?

I'd definitely check with the local tenants' association, as suggested by others, and find out which of the divorcing couple have legal title / control of the apartment. Oh, and since you've already passed on a (hopefully suitable) following tenant, I'd say you're covered anyway - if they choose to take different action following that, and give you a letter signed by both of them that you've fulfilled your requirements and only have to pay rent to x date, you should be fine!

Still, check with the tenants' association too ...
